A Massachusetts notice to quit for non-compliance requires a tenant to correct a lease violation or leave the property within a specified notice period. If there is a written lease, the notice period must follow what is written in the form.
For tenancies without a written lease, the notice period is either 30 days or one full rental period, whichever is longer. If the tenant fails to comply with the landlord’s conditions before the notice period expires, the landlord may terminate their tenancy and file for eviction. A 30-day notice to quit is required if a tenant has not met their lease obligations.
